This presentation has been made
possible painstakingly with the three sisters working as a team, Jumaymah,
Aïshah and Layana Frémaux-Soormally, under the close and strict supervision of
their one and only Dada Basheer, their loving Grandfather.
A big thank you to the staff who
allowed our Dada to accompany Layana on that walk in the local forest. The weather was excellent and the children
had a lot of fun. We hope you all will like it as well as their Dadi Kaamilah (Grandmother Kathaleen Bates) who lives in Pennsylvania in the U.S.A.
Signs of Autumn
In the forest my imagination ran wild
I imagined seeing wild animals like giraffes. I even touched one.
And how cuddly the lion was!
But, was there really a monkey?
The teacher asked us to use our imagination and I did so!
Watch out for the bear, I screamed when I passed by the trunk of a huge tree! But, nobody heard me!
Maybe there was no bear at all as nobody seemed to have seen it!
We walked in the mud and it was very slippery!
Indeed very muddy and very slippery!
After collecting dead leaves we slowly left the muddy path.
But, we were still very careful and looked carefully where we put our feet!
Chavardes took pictures all along.
Now, we are nearly out in the open.
Everybody seems happy and not tired at all!
No more mud, thank God!
And now the real fun will start!
Everybody seemed very happy and playful.
Then we played football on the grass and enjoyed it greatly.
It was great fun with
Chavardes, Mrs Boon and Mrs Randall. Grass is more fun than mud, isn't it?
And the view was splendid!
I seem to remember the teacher speaking about a bear hunt.
Others must have seen the bear too! I cannot be the only one!
The picture of a panda was in my mind all the time!
But, now I was wondering how the forest would look like in the snow.
Was that monkey reading my mind when I was thinking of winter?
It took me a moment to come back to Autumn! But, my imagination stopped at Spring! And everything was so beautiful!
Were we not all imagining seeing also so many animals? I am sure I was not the only one!
It was like in a dream!
Everything was so colourful. A real Garden of Eden!
I even felt a lion breathing in my neck and I was not afraid!
Nobody was afraid of the lion!
Not even of the big wild cat!
I could even hear the sound of a waterfall and see a golden fish jumping out of the water.
This made me feel sleepy!
I think it is time for me to come back to reality! It was great fun but everything has an end.
On our way back. All is well that ends well.
Back to Nursery!
A big thank you to the staff and helpers and to IMIKIMI who made the trip so beautiful and a real dream with its splendid artwork.
THIS WAS TO BE THE FIRST AND LAST TIME I WOULD ACCOMPANY MY BABY ON A SCHOOL TRIP AS I WAS BANNED BY THE UNGRATEFUL AND CRUEL MOTHER TO SEE ANY ONE OF MY THREE GRAND CHILDREN AT SCHOOL! OTHERS NOT BEARING MY NAME HAD REPLACED ME!
